Baylor College of Medicine does not offer medical advice via email, Facebook, and other social media in the absence of an existing physician-patient relationship. Your medical question has not been analyzed by our medical staff.
Electronic communication cannot substitute for a medical evaluation in which the physician takes a history from a patient, conducts a physical examination and orders and interprets the appropriate diagnostic tests. It is unwise and unprofessional for a physician to provide medical advice without the information gained from such an evaluation.
If you believe you require medical care from a physician, for appointments, call 713-798-7600. For clinical trials, please visit our clinical research studies site:http://www.bcm.edu/clinicalstudies/. If you need emergency care call 911.
